ID: CC17223
A superb example of Calcite pseudomorphs after Aragonite on a small matrix of sooty-black manganese oxides from Torr Works quarry (Merehead quarry) at Cranmore in Somerset, England.  The Calcite forms two clearly defined hexagonal pseudomorphs, the much larger of the two measuring 3.5 x 1.7 x 1.6 cm and both composed of glassy, colourless to milky-white micro-crystals of Calcite.  A terrific specimen from the Torr Works locality, famous for its rare suite of oxychloride minerals.
